Magee Photograph Collection

Visit the Magee Photograph Collection »

The Magee Photograph Collection consists mainly of photographic negatives, stereoscope cards, and various size prints produced by photographers Thomas B. Magee (1862-1930) and Henry L. Magee (1896-1966) of Browning, Montana. The collection was acquired by the University of Alberta in 2007 from Donald L. Magee, the son of aforementioned Henry L. Magee. A selection of 1000+ negatives and stereoscope cards have been digitized and described through a partnership with the University of Lethbridge. The original materials are now permanently kept at the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at the University of Alberta.

A detailed explanation of the digitization and description process, as well as brief biographies of the Magee family, can be found on the University of Lethbridge Library's (archived) Magee Collection project site.

A special thanks to the University of Lethbridge Library for their significant contributions in digitizing this important prairie collection.
